Support excellence in teaching

Today’s political and economic climate has made it particularly challenging to sustain that “margin of excellence” the students, alumni and friends of the university have come to expect. That is why the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Foundation is committed to securing dollars that can be invested in faculty excellence, recruitment and retention.

Teaching, Research and Scholarship

The Foundation plays a role in creating sustainable revenue sources for faculty positions, which is especially critical when recruiting and retaining faculty. Our goal is to establish endowed faculty positions because these are sustainable revenue sources, which is especially critical when recruiting and retaining faculty. For budgeting and staffing purposes, the university needs to know that it has a renewable funding source to invest in faculty. Various endowment levels will support named faculty positions. Additionally, there is an annual funding opportunity that will serve as a means to recognize and reward faculty for their annual accomplishments and performance.

You can support exceptional faculty through your gifts to invest in:

  • Collaborative Research
  • Honors Program
  • Faculty Retention
  • International Study
  • High Impact Practices for Students

The Foundation prioritizes an investment in UW-Eau Claire faculty as critical to fulfilling our mission. The University Fellows program is a distinctive way of recognizing faculty at critical junctures in their career paths at UW-Eau Claire.
